After 20 years working with enterprise intranets, I had an epiphany.
My client had 10,000 frontline workers — no emails, no computers. How would they access the intranet? How would they receive urgent messages? My inside voice said, “They won’t.” But then I saw those same frontline workers on their smartphones, messaging their friends. And that’s when the idea for Tangowork was born: I realized the best way to reach employees — today, in 2017 — is via their messaging apps.
Our small development team got to work, and now we’re proud to present Tangowork, the first and only chatbot dedicated to the needs of internal communications professionals.
And although we’re new, we have deep experience — I also co-founded ThoughtFarmer, a world-class intranet product used by over 200 companies around the world.
So join us as we make Tangowork your most trusted way to get a message to employees!
